Occupational burnout has various complications in the family, social and personal life and organization. Absence and desertion, consecutive delays, different sociological complaints, conflict, changing the job and decreased quality of patients care and interpersonal conflicts with colleagues are of its most important complications. The occupational burnout imposes various consequences and costs on organizations and employees. Therefore, we have decided to compare the occupational burnout in the female nurses of the psychiatry and neurology wards of Tabriz University of Medical Sciences in 2015. 80 nurses of Razi hospital in Tabriz who had fully answered the questionnaires of the study were included in the research and were examined. The questionnaire consisted of questions in the field of burnout syndrome examination which was designed by IBM criteria and three components of this syndrome i.e. emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and personal-accomplishment were investigated. In the studies carried out, no meaningful difference were observed for the emotional exhaustion among the nurses of the psychiatry and neurology wards which indicates the identical working condition in terms of emotional exhaustion based on the questionnaire of the study. Also, no meaningful differences were observed among the nurses in the depersonalization scale, either which indicates the identical nurses in these two wards in terms of depersonalization scale. In the studies carried out, meaningful differences were observed between the emotional exhaustion and the activity duration in the nursing profession. However, in the results obtained, no meaningful differences were observed between the activity duration in the nursing profession and the depersonalization scale. Nevertheless, the emotional exhaustion level among the studied nurses in the second decade of activity in the nursing profession showed a meaningful increase compared to other years of activity. In the overall results obtained, almost 60% of the nurses suffer from emotional exhaustion and 84% of them suffer from depersonalization for which special attention is required.
